My Take on the State of the Democratic Party
What is the state of the Democratic Party? According to some in it, it is doing quite well and is thriving because of its professed hatred of Trump and everything he does. Perhaps that’s true for deep-blue enclaves such as coastal California (the interior of California is actually quite Republican), New York, and other areas of big cities. In other words, I suppose the Democrats are doing well in the states and cities with the most stringent gun control measures.
But, those areas are quite limited. And, I’d say it’s debatable if the Democrats are even thriving there; as you can see in the picture above, the far-left is destroying the somewhat more reasonable left in spectacular performances of political self-immolation that normally have something to do with climate change alarmism.
In real America, whether a purple state like Wisconsin, a red-leaning state like North Carolina, or a deep-red state like Alabama, the state of the Democratic Party is far worse.
Those areas of the country are populated by working, normal people of the sort that still believe in hard work, free enterprise, and individual liberty. So when they see an open and avowed communist, who happens to be the front runner in the Democratic primary, forced off the stage by an insane, anti-dairy protester, they, of course, see that the Democratic Party is a mess and falling apart.
So, if I had to sum up the state of the Democratic Party in two words, they would be: “utter collapse.”
It didn’t have to be this way. Back in the days of the JFK Administration and The Best and The Brightest, both parties loved America. JFK was even more of a hawk than Richard Nixon! Now, of course, the Democrats still had their flaws, as Goldberg discusses in Liberal Fascism, but they certainly believed in the concept of America. There’s no indication that modern Democrats like AOC do. In fact, she seems to hate America and everything that it stands for.
All that changed with the turmoil of the ’60s, huge increases in taxpayer-funded welfare programs, and the embrace of socialism by the mainstream left that Andrew Breitbart does a good job of describing in Righteous Indignation. Now, the chickens have come home to roost, so to speak, for the Democrats.
When Trump was elected, their implosion began. Despite some corruption before then, such as the Fast and Furious scandal, the Democrats weren’t a particularly corrupt or insane bunch. Sure, they were to the left and engaged in the occasional corrupt act, but Republicans weren’t saints either. But, with the 2016 election, all that changed.
FBI corruption, DOJ corruption, revelations about Joe Biden’s corruption in Ukraine, and other shocking and disgusting examples of Democrat corruption and abuse of office in the last days of the Obama Administration were exposed by Trump’s ascendance to the White House. And, his melting of the snowflakes has led to an absurd amount of Democrat hysteria. Their freak-outs over border security, the Alabama abortion bill, safe spaces, and much more also stemmed from Trump’s election.
That shift will be disastrous for them. Americans won’t elect a communist that’s a danger to the very fabric of this nation, nor will they stand for continuous grandstanding by lunatic protesters. It’s time for Americans to grow up and move on, and the longer the Democrats refuse to accept that, the longer their party will continue to deteriorate.
